InfiniDB 1.5 Final is Now Available!
I am very excited to announce that the the FINAL 1.5 version of the InfiniDB Community Edition is now available for use. Thanks to everyone in the community for helping us through the alpha, beta, and RC cycles to the 1.5 release of InfiniDB.
We've put a lot of hard work into this release and we've come a long way since 1.0. Here's a reminder of a few of the features that have been added since 1.0:
- High-speed subqueries.
- Support for running on Microsoft Windows.
- Support for updating a column's value with another column's value or a value derived from other columns.
- Support for functions and expressions in the where clause for DML statements.
- Support for queries with mixed outer joins
- Support for several new distributed functions.
- Automatic updating of the Extent Map by cpimport.
- Support for prepared statements.
- Support for load data infile null escape sequence in cpimport.
- Enhanced Extent Map handling for minimum/maximum column value projections between multiple tables.
- Enhanced support for UTF-8.
- Faster concurrent query/active transaction performance.
- STDIN support for imported data in cpimport (used by certain BI tools such as Pentaho).
I am very proud of the amount of content that we've been able to add in a release just five short months after 1.0. We have a great team and it's a testament to their hard work and the foundation of a solid architecture.
This release also includes a number of bug fixes that you can see at http://bugs.launchpad.net/infinidb.
You can download the latest InfiniDB binaries, source code, and updated documentation at: http://infinidb.org/downloads.
In addition, we also made 1.5 available as InfiniDB Enterprise Edition today.
